The Los Angeles Lakers are obviously going to be the favorites here, but they've been a little shaky over the last week and they've had some really bizarre results. The Atlanta Hawks are playing their best ball of the season with the offense finally showing up, and they've covered six of their last seven contests. The Hawks are winning their last five games by an average of five points. This could be a back and forth offensive contest. I'll grab the points.
